    Heidelberg’s must see
    This is the must-see place in Heidelberg. Expect to spend around 1-2 hours at the castle. I’d recommend paying for the Bergbahn to get from the street level to the castle. Your ticket for that includes your entrance fee to the schloss. If you don’t want to pay to go into the schloss, you can wander the gardens and get some excellent views of the city below. I’d also recommend purchasing an audio guide for a slight additional fee. Greatly enhances the visit and gives insight into construction, history, and art surrounding the castle.

    Fully deserving of its reputation, but consider skipping the guided tour
    The Heidelberg Palace’s reputation as a cultural and historic site is fully deserved. The architecture and history here are remarkable, and the views are memorable. In addition, the German Pharmacy Museum is quite interesting, not to mention highly unusual. But if we did it all over again, we would have skipped the guided tour and instead opted for the audio guide. For starters, even though we arrived at 9:45, the first available English guided tour this day was a 12:15; we chose to head back to the city and return for the 2:15 tour. Of greater importance: even though the guided tours permit entry into some buildings not otherwise accessible, they were not all that historic or interesting. The tour guide was exceptionally knowledgeable about all matters historical, and if you are into the many intricate details covering centuries of kings and conflict, the guided tour may be for you. As for me, I’ll go with the audio guide if I return for a second visit.
